Doha, 4 August 2022 - A new project under the name 'Caravans Village' will be announced soon to provide multiple accommodation options for the fans attending the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, being held from November 21 to December 18.
This was announced by Omar Abdulrahman al-Jaber, executive director of the Housing Department at the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC).
"Work is also progressing well to complete the residential facilities that the committee is planning to convert into hotels during the tournament, in co-operation with the Accor International Hotel Group. They will be classified from three to five stars according to their locations," he explained.
“There are many options that the committee is working on, in order to accommodate the World Cup fans. It is also following up on projects such as Barwa Village, and hotel ships, which can accommodate more than 9,500 people. The inauguration of the first residential ship will be on November 13.
Pointing out that the committee has also received many requests for housing reservations, al-Jaber said there was a great demand for booking rooms in floating hotels (cruise ships) and stressed that additional rooms would be provided as required.
The SC official stated that there is great co-operation between hotel owners and the committee, as the reservation process will be on the Hayya Card platform, to be activated in November, following which fans can come to Qatar.
"The options for accommodation for the fans are updated weekly through the Hayya platform, and different options will be provided in the coming weeks," al-Jaber added.
According to information available on qatar2022.qa website, the MSC Poesia and the MSC World Europa will be permanently moored at Doha’s Grand Terminal, just 10 minutes by shuttle to the heart of Doha, Souq Waqif.
Both cruise ship hotels offer a variety of cabin options, from traditional and ocean-view cabins to balcony cabins and luxurious suites.
Each cruise ship hotel offers multiple dining possibilities and an entertainment programme for all ages.
